NewCom is not against Mutambara and would like provide a safe and convenient location to him. There are making sure Mutambara is safe to go home every times and go workplace for short time. The companys housing policy is fair and reasonable because NewCom wanted to guarantee that its employees had safe, high quality housing that was in keeping with the image that the company wanted to project. It is culturally biased because difference between consideration of company and Mutambaras sides. Mutambara is Rambian and he living in Rambia is right but he is working for NewCom, so that he must follow the obligation of NewCom and cooperate to protect companys image with all employees and employers.
